New Delhi: Umesh Yadav is relieved that he is back in the scheme of things, but the bigger reason for his happiness is that senior pro Zaheer Khan will be around during India's upcoming tour of South Africa to guide the junior bowlers. (Zaheer in Test squad for South Africa tour)
"Zaheer has had a great influence on youngsters with his ability to guide us through the bump and grind of international cricket. I have got a lot of valuable tips on fast bowling and there is no better exponent of reverse swing than Zak. He is like mentor to us and it is an honour to play international cricket alongside him," the 26-year-old Vidarbha pacer told PTI on Monday.
"Zaheer's advice in match situations are invaluable as he is a brilliant reader of opposition batsmen."
